Real Madrid defender and team captain Sergio Ramos had surgery this past Saturday to repair his left meniscus and will be out around six weeks as he recovers from his injury. Ramos published a video on his social media and explained why he made the decision to have surgery.

“In the end I had to have surgery, nobody likes to be in this situation but thankfully everything went great. It was an advise from the doctors and I really didn’t have a choice,” said Ramos.

The defender should be back in time for a potential tie in the Champions League Quarterfinals if Real Madrid advance against Atalanta.

“I’m here to tell you that I’m very happy about the outcome of the surgery and that I will try to be back as soon as possible to help the team, because there’s a lot of football to be played this season. I want to thank Dr. Leyes and his team for the excellent work they did,” concluded Ramos.

Real Madrid will definitely miss Ramos’ presence when they face Atalanta, but the veteran defender should be back at 100% once he completes his rehab.
